Opinion

Another View: County Charter Section 504
By Contributor
By Todd White

In 1994 the voters of El Dorado County decided to pass a county charter, which outlines the manner in which they would like to have county government be held accountable to the people. The County Charter preamble outlines this intention, “We, the people of El Dorado County, adopt the charter to provide a county government that is responsive to the public safety, infrastructure and other appropriate needs as to be provided by county government in a democratic and just manner.”

Currently the Charter Review Commission, which is appointed by the Board of Supervisors, is reviewing the County Charter and will be recommending changes to the board, like it did two years ago. Unlike a couple years ago, the changes that may be recommended are not minor in nature, but could greatly restrict the public’s ability to elect their own representatives. The positions possibly affected include auditor-controller, treasurer-tax collector, recorder-clerk and the county surveyor. If these department heads are not elected by the people, the Board of Supervisors would appoint them. Additionally affected; would be the compensation of our local law enforcement, which is outlined in Section 504 of our county’s charter. If Section 504 is eliminated, the salaries of our local law enforcement could be negatively affected. Section 504 requires the Board of Supervisors to adjust the salaries of law enforcement to be “at least equal to the average of the salares for the comparable positions in the South Lake Tahoe Police Department, Amador County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol.” Section 504 needs to stay in place to make sure these basic salary protections remain in place.

With the recent announcement of current Recorder-Clerk William Schultz’s retirement following next year’s election, the El Dorado County Deputy Sheriff’s Association (EDSO DSA) decided to endorse in the election of his replacement. Usually, the EDSO DSA wouldn’t become involved in this race, but with the potential changes to the charter, their membership realizes they need elected department heads in place who are knowledgeable of the County Charter, and who will best advocate for the needs of local law enforcement and the needs of all people in El Dorado County.

I am truly humbled and grateful for the endorsement of the EDSO DSA. The men and women of our local law enforcement are the real life embodiment of our community’s heroes, and their sacrifice to our community should never be disregarded or taken for granted. With the EDSO DSA, I agree that the voter-approved charter puts distinct limitations on bureaucratic government and allows the people to elect those who represent them. We need elected county department heads in place who recognize that any changes to the charter put Section 504 at risk. The people of this great county need to retain their authority to ensure that every member of local law enforcement is properly paid.

South Lake Tahoe City Councilman Tom Davis endorses Todd White for Recorder-Clerk

“It is a privilege to receive the endorsement of South Lake Tahoe City Councilman Tom Davis in my bid for El Dorado County Recorder-Clerk. Tom has been a stalwart advocate and common sense leader in the South Shore community for over 40 years. Not only is he dedicated to South Lake Tahoe, but to all of El Dorado County. I originally met Tom through his work on the County Fair Board of Directors and his ongoing support of the FFA/4-H Junior Livestock Auction.

Tom’s remarkable character can be seen through his actions and work. His good character also becomes abundantly evident through the success of his children. Tom is the father of local hero Justin “JT” Davis, who serves as a deputy sheriff in Douglas County. I have the honor of serving with JT on the El Dorado County Republican Central Committee. Both men put things plainly and always do what’s right and just. It is an honor to have their support for County Recorder-Clerk.”

“I am very thankful and honored to receive the endorsement of City Councilman Jason Collin. Jason is dedicated to the people of South Lake Tahoe and always has the betterment of the community at heart. The two years I have known him, he has demonstrated integrity, trust, and hard work. When I’m elected Recorder-Clerk, Jason will be a constant reminder that the City of South Lake Tahoe needs an equal seat at the table when it comes to working on county issues. Having the endorsement of a City Councilman is exciting, but the best part of receiving Jason’s endorsement is that I know I have the support of an honorable family man and a truly humble human being. I want to thank him again for his support.”

EDC Deputy-Sheriffs’ Association Endorses Todd White for Recorder-Clerk

“I am truly humbled and grateful for the endorsement of the El Dorado County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association. The men and women of our local law enforcement are the real life embodiment of our community’s heroes, and their sacrifice to our community should never be disregarded or taken for granted.

The main objective of this campaign is to lead the Recorder-Clerk’s office in a way that exemplifies integrity and trust. Equally important to being successful in this race for the Recorder-Clerk’s office is to keep the charter in place. The voter-approved charter puts distinct limitations on bureaucratic government and allows the people to elect those who represent them. Within the charter is Section 504, which helps determine the salaries of the heroes that work in our local law enforcement. We need elected county department heads in place who recognize that any changes to the charter put Section 504 at risk. The people of this great county need to retain their authority to ensure that every member of local law enforcement is properly paid. A vote for Todd White for Recorder-Clerk is a vote for the county charter.”

–Todd White, Candidate for EDC Recorder-Clerk

Todd White is happy to receive the endorsement of former City of Placerville Mayor John Nerwinski and the endorsement of local law enforcement advocate Cathy Nerwinski.

After serving Placerville families for over 30 years, John is now semi-retired and works as a dentist in South Lake Tahoe.

Commenting on her support of Todd, Cathy stated, “I have known Todd for many years, and have served with him in the community. He loves El Dorado County and is dedicated to its well being. He is going to be an excellent Recorder-Clerk.”

Commenting on both endorsements, Todd stated, “There are no better people than John and Cathy Nerwinski. They are the gold standard. Their dedication to the community is ongoing and unmatched. I am honored to have their endorsements for County Recorder-Clerk.”
